Hi Max,

I think you misunderstood me, I was not referring to your email. A library
choice is obviously in developer's hands, who choose one for its features,
performance, code usability, and such. I think only good things of
webmachine, mochiweb, yaws, and cowboy.

Instead, I was referring to Heinz [snippet of his email]:

I've dedicated a lot of attention in not breaking backwards compatibility
on misultin. Since AFAIK Heinz did not file any issues regarding this (I do
realize that actually contributing to an open source project is much more
time consuming than just plain stating opinions on a mailing list), I'm
just curious to have some feedback on how that could happen, should Heinz
be willing to share that information with me.

I just don't like receiving public criticism of my work in this way, as I
always hope to get constructive criticism. Otherwise, I might as well just
keep my source closed, for that matters.
